Surveys- we want your feedback

There a couple of surveys on the EPSB website right now and if you have a few minutes to spare, we'd love to have your feedback!

District Satisfaction Surveys- these cover a whole gamut of areas from how safe do you feel your child is walking to school to how satisfied are you with the leadership provided by your Principal; from how much input do you feel you have in decision-making to....(drum roll please) much confidence do you have in the Board of Trustees?

You may have received this survey in the mail already. If not, you can complete it on-line:
If my link doesn't work, it's on the bottom of the homepage (

The second survey is gathering input on the new Respectful Learning and Working Environment policy and how it should be communicated and apply to parents. This was the topic of the last Parents as Partners meeting and we got some good feedback on the proposed pamphlet and how we can make schools welcoming and free of harassment for everyone, including parents.

Here's the link to give your feedback: and click on the "ON LINE Survey" button towards the bottom of the page.

Thanks for taking the time to get involved!

If you have any ideas to share with us about the Parents as Partners program, we'd love to hear from you. Typically, our turn-out is quite low, so we're interested in hearing how we can make it more relevant, accessible and workable for busy parents. Video-conferencing? Taking it out into the wards? A change of time or day of the week? Specfic topics you'd like to see? Providing free child care or even having a session for parents AND kids? What do you think?
